if you're feeling tight, tense, or just grumpy it's time for a little uncorking...also known as decompression flow.
what's that? a blend of front and side body lengthening that works on your spine and hips to create length, ease, and spaciousness.
you'll want to open this one again, and again, and again.
this one's a tall glass of water...well, something like that.
it's based on the principle that moving your body through all its ranges of motion increases circulation and hydration in your tissues.
so, it's a line up of hip openers, side body openers, and twists.
we think it's the best way to get unstuck physically and mentally.
but also: have that tall glass of water.
seriously...this one takes all the stress out of arm balances, because we don't do any. ok, we sneak in an optional one at the end, but it's only optional.
what we do is focus on some of the principles of arm balancing that we can use in other postures to feel stronger, more engaged, lighter, and more open.
and that's good stuff.
in this strong and focused flow, we make some fun with Standing Leg Raise, leaving aside the traditional alignment and working it in flow to strengthen the hips, hamstrings and core. plus, we'll cruise into some really nice stretching and relaxation at the end.
